Meet Durango! She is a goofy girl saved from the Apopka dog fighting ring bust. As a result, she is shy with new people but warms up quickly if allowed to acclimate/approach you. She's currently fostered with 3 other dogs & seems good with older kids as well as cats. A companion dog with calm energy helps build her confidence in new situations, as she learns what a dog's life is supposed to be. Sadly, until that fateful day, she never got to be appreciated/loved. Now she actually craves & asks for it. She loves to play with other dogs & can be a bulldozer as she'll run straight at the other dogs (or humans) really fast and sometimes can't stop herself. Likes rough & tumble play but is never aggressive. She's still learning manners. Getting used to loud noises but will shy away on occasion, especially raises voices. Will cuddle in bed with you, if allowed. Durango is a masterpiece in progress and needs a patient owner to continue her doggie education. Could that be you?



About Barkie's Legacy

About Our Rescue Group...

We rescue stray dogs or those in Florida shelters whose time is up and adopt them out to loving homes. We are amazed at the amount of dogs that are unwanted, unloved or abused, so we're trying to make a difference one dog at a time!

Come Meet Our Pets...

During the week, by appointment. Most Saturdays we are at the Apopka Petco located at 2227 East Semoran Blvd, Apopka, 32703 from 1:00pm to 5:00pm.
We do our best to update our Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/#!/pages/Barkies-Legacy/237852656255202 with any special events around town. It's always good to send us a message to confirm we'll be there as we'd love to have you come visit our babies!

Our Adoption Process...

We believe our dogs and puppies deserve the best homes, so all prospective adopters must have good references and agree to a home visit. All our dogs are up-to-date on shots and spayed or neutered. An adoption fee is charged to help defray veterinarian and other expenses. We have promised our babies that they will never have to worry again, so adopters will sign a contract agreeing to take good care of the animal, and if an adoption doesn't work out for any reason, the animal MUST be returned to Barkie's Legacy.
